PhD researcher 2011–15. Victoria Bradbury’s research investigates the performativity of code in participatory new media artworks. Her recent art practice activates programming code, making process, and participants to investigate new media through contexts of participatory knowledge exchange.

In 2015, Bradbury participated in Hack the City (Sheffield) and The Yorkshire Hack (Digital Utopias Conference, Hull). She was a Creative Makings artist-in-residence at Gateshead Arts (2014-15), where she ran workshops in creative coding and physical computing.

In 2014, she was co-Lead Artist organising the Thinking Digital Arts // Hack at New Bridge Project (Newcastle). She participated in Hack the Space at the Tate Modern (London). She was invited by the V&A to discuss her work at their Digital Futures event at the White Building (London). Also in 2014, she co-organised the Into Practice Book Sprint at Banner Repeater (London). She was artist-in-residence at Digital Media Labs (Barrow), and her research was published in CITAR: Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts after the xCoAx Conference (Porto, Portugal). In 2013, she spoke at Maker Space, Newcastle, about her experiences working in hacker spaces in China (Xin Che Jian Shanghai/Beijing Makerspace).

Bradbury’s artworks were exhibited in the Dear Angel exhibition (Globe Gallery, Newcastle 2013), and in the Show Me the Money exhibition and publication (Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland 2014).

Her artwork Blue Boar (2011) was installed at the New Britain Museum of American Art. Midway Projections (2010) was included in Beyond/In: Alternating Currents at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The Light in the Background is the Sun (2009), a series of single-channel videos, was screened at Artist Television Access in San Francisco and Hallwalls Gallery in Buffalo, NY, and Home Sweet Home (2010) was projected in the End-to-End exhibition at Harvestworks, NYC.

She has been a faculty fellow for the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts and Assistant Professor of Electronic Art at Ball State University. From 2009-2010 she taught in the University of Florida Art and Technology department.
